Keeping your air conditioner in good shape is less expensive and complicated than you probably think. Best of all, it won’t even take you a full day!
 Easy Ways to Keep Your AC Running Smoothly
Warning: Before performing any of the following maintenance tips, be sure to turn off power to your air conditioning unit:

  • Find the shut-off box near your exterior condenser/compressor
  • Switch off the power at your breaker box

Here are a few ways to keep your AC unit running smoothly:

  1. Vacuum away leaves and other debris from the exterior condenser/compressor
  2. Use your hose to blast away any dirt or debris from the fins
  3. Straighten out the fins with a butter knife
  4. Clean up the area around your unit; allow for at least 2 feet of clearance in all directions
  5. Make sure your unit is level
  6. Dust off your compressor coils

Following these steps will not fix a broken air conditioner, but it will help your unit run more efficiently. A better-running air conditioner will also last longer!
